Milovan Rajevac meets Edmund Addo after FC Sheriff's defeat to Inter Milan in Champions League

Published on: 20 October 2021

Ghana coach, Milovan Rajevac has met midfielder Edmund Addo for the first time in Italy.

The 21-year-old was handed a late call up for the Black Stars doubleheader against Zimbabwe after Alfred Duncan requested to miss the game after an impressive showing against Real Madrid but was prevented from joining the national team by his club side.

However, the Moldovan club rejected the request from the Ghan Football Association.

This was because the Ghana FA’s invitation did not meet the required minimum 10-day prior notice as prescribed by FIFA.

However, Milovan, who replaced CK Akonnor last month was in Italy to watch the Champions League tie between Inter Milan and FC Sheriff.

Addo played 71 minutes of the game and suffered a 3-1 defeat at the San Siro.

However, he might not have to wait much longer as he put in a decent shift with the Serbian tactician looking on.

Ghana’s next World Cup qualifier will be against Ethiopia on November 11 and a final home game against South Africa at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium and the Ghanaian youngster who ranks second for Sheriff Tiraspol in tackles and interceptions (12) could soon fulfil a dream.
